meant to post long long ago, but was so very carried away. parents sent iomega external USB CD burner. arrived today. and today, kd burned her first and then second CDs. she got a little carried away with the whole idea – the first one was just a cd of mp3s for playing in other computers, she did that first, on the one CDRW in case it had to be RW’d … you know, who knows what can happen when you’re making music go on plastic with a laser for the mostly first time.
emboldened by her success and amazed that one actually can take mp3s and turn them into actual music files that play on actual CD players, she compiled a small list of reflective, lyrical tunes, burned a CD, found all the lyrics except those belonging to local bands who never ever published a lyric list – these she transcribed, and put together a thirteen page lyric sheet to go with the CD she calls ‘various mellowness’. she’s going to have so much more fun when she gets enough cds to really feel adventurous, but as is the burner came with one RW and two Rs, only one R left and for pete’s sake she needs those special label papers that you do the whole CD kit with. good god the fun one could have making the custom labels and cover collages and so forth.
this is more fun than she’d imagined, it’s driven her straight insane and caused this third person crapola. at this hour, no less.
fuck, life rocks.
